The F1 community always looks forward to seeing the banter between teammates. Hence, it was no surprise that they adored the banter between the McLaren drivers over a game of table tennis, where it seemed that Daniel had just lost a bet. Or maybe Norris had taken over his Twitter account? The latter seems more likely.

Daniel tweeted, “Apart from just getting beat 5-0 by Lando in table tennis, he’s taught me so much this year, especially in high speed corners. Impressive. He’s got some large cojones. Something I don’t have.”

Norris replied with a cheeky comment saying, “Daniel, nahhhh, stop it, making me blush.”
